Spicy Fish Finger Recipe | Indian Style Fish Finger Recipe | Baked Fish Finger Recipe

Fish Finger Recipe
Today's recipe is a simple Kids friendly Fish Starter, Fish Finger both Deep fried & Baked Fish Finger version. Last month When I prepared Breadcrumbs with Homemade White Bread I immediately wanted to try some cutlet or Croquettes with it. But then I got to remember that got some King Fish Fillet at Whole Foods On weekend. So instead of cutlets, tried this easy Fish Finger recipe and it turned out great. My kids loved it a lot, they even liked the baked fillet too. I do not eat fish so I couldn't say about the taste but my kids thoroughly enjoyed it. You can add any spices to your taste or to your kids preference I mildly spiced the fish fillets and set it rest for 20-30 minutes. But you can fry or bake them immediately. Resting time definitely gives better flavor and taste to it.
Fish Finger are easy to make and can be served with ketchup or any kind of creamy or spicy dipping.

  • And in another bowl add bread crumbs and keep ready.
  • If deep frying, heat oil in a pan to deep fry.
  • Toss each strip in flour and shake off excess flour.
  • Next, dip the strip into the egg mixture and allow extra egg liquid to drip back into the bowl.
  • Then coat the strip with the breadcrumb. Slightly press the strip into the crumbs to make sure it is well coated. Let it stand for 5-10 minutes.
  • Do repeat the same for all the pieces and arrange it in a plate before deep frying.
  • When the oil is hot, drop 1 or 2 pieces at a time and fry it in medium hot oil till turns golden brown on both sides.

  • For Baked Fish Finger
  • Preheat oven to 200 C / 350 F.
  • Line baking sheet with foil paper, and brush it with oil or cooking spray.
  • Then arrange the bread crumb coated pieces and brush top with oil.
  • And bake it for 6-8 minutes. Turn halfway through.
  • Baking time varies based on the fish strip thickness. I baked only the thin piece.
You can also flavor the breadcrumbs by adding some dried parsley, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder etc.
If you don't like ginger, then skip it and add garlic powder, fennel powder alone.
